I have a 1900 complete ironman on OSRS. I am considering RS gold starting a ironman - but some of questing and the grinds are putting off me. In addition, I havent played RS3 in seven decades. I wondered what the difference between the ironman modes? I know its vague but even some input describing how crafting training/slayer differs between the two (as examples) may help convince me to try it out. Is gearing up the same? Like typically killing a boss X amount of times until you receive a drop?
There are more life quality game mechanisms in RS3 like presets from the lender or sign of the porters into teleport mats you gathered if training a gathering ability (harder to get on ironman) and a lot more suitable items/mechanics. This can be mimicked almost perfectly on RS3; nonetheless it better on RS3. Place whatever thing you need to fall in your action bar (like, say you're fly fishing in the Barbarian village, then place salmon and trout on your action bar), then customise the keybind to those two slots. Hold down those secrets and you drop all of it.
Prayer & Summoning can be revived in Essence's Guthix Memorial Pile right next to the Falador Lodestone, and all banks revive health near-instantly. In fairness AFAIK this is not an OSRS thing, it's a third-party-client thing, and if I could be blunt... That's easyscape as hell! Granted, RS3 desperately needs a hunt, but it will have 8 favorite/bookmark slots for oft-used fairy rings, and they teleport instantly, without needing the dials to twist to their correct position. When there's 8 or even fewer that you use frequently, albeit a separate issue is solved by this.
RS3 definitely does not have this! RS3 doesn't have this, although we do have lots of other things for categories of items. RS3 does have this on objects. All the mobile stations, for instance, possess a right-click Configure alternative that lets you pick the alternative. Bonfires do. Pretty comprehensive answer, I concur that RS3 likely has more QOL than OSRS, I just wanted to show that there are a number of items that OSRS does this I really miss now that I'm enjoying more RS3. I basically consider them canon for OSRS, also because most OSRS players utilize 3rd party clients.

Put whatever thing you want to drop in your action bar (like, say you're fly fishing in the Barbarian village, then place trout and salmon on your action bar), and then customise the keybind to those two slots. Hold down those secrets and you drop it all. I would agree that for stuff where you're doing a great deal of dropping (which is likely the more common use case) RS3 takes the cake. The advantage for OSRS is when you have cheap OSRS gold to drop a bunch of items and you do not have the setup. Or perhaps for dropping a couple of items to make space on something or a slayer task.
